We're winding down the 2013 year as it closes out with Christmas and the holiday season. With shopping, parties, and entertaining, the midst of it all can sometimes burn us out with working, and attending family engagements.

Year end vacations can be the best remedies for rejuvenating and starting the new year with zest and energy. They provide a new perspective for life, and help bring in a new focus for the upcoming year with resolutions and a fresh outlook.

How many times have we wanted and wished to get away to a nice retreat? Or, said to ourselves wow, wouldn't a nice getaway do a world of good? And, how many of us daydream with visions of fun in the sun, while receiving the ultimate massage to iron out all that stress? Then we watch in awe of the lovely times our friends are having in fun exotic getaways winter during the winter season!

Perhaps we can recalibrate with positive thinking techniques like an active a.m. exercise routine (aerobic sessions), to help control our thoughts and keep us aligned in mind, body and spirit. A great way to indulge yourself in personalized pampering sessions of tranquil surroundings, and relaxation, are deep tissue massages. They help to stimulate circulation, and relieve muscle soreness. Stone massages also offer deep penetration and help melt away tension.

Many spa retreats are equipped with health and wellness programs that provide outdoor activities (hiking, body toning and sculpting), even yoga sessions. They also offer healing treatments, and wellness luxury services for a mind/body retreat. Indulging in an intense balancing facial, or body wrap does wonders and could be just the thing to bring vitality back into our lives and start the new year off with a bang! O.k. time for the bunny hop dance! Up, back, Hop! Hop! Hop!

Happy Vacations!
